Back To School Tassel Garland

This Back To School Tassel Garland is SO quick & easy to make. Would be adorable for a back to school mom's brunch or for a welcome back bulletin board or in the staff room....

Back To School is going to be here before I know it and rather than let it take over like a hurricane, I’m going to embrace it and celebrate it with a Mom’s Back To School Brunch! So I don’t get overwhelmed with all the details I’m going to do a little each week so I have all of those thoughtful touches that I love without the added stress! Once I decided on my color scheme {natural kraft paper-ish & apple green} I was ready to get started with my first project a Back To School Tassel Garland!
